I feel guilty about posting fish pics in the " fly fishing" section, fish pictures thread, that aren't caught on fly.


I figured this would be an appropriate place to share those photos.


Let's see them!

Thanks.  Not sure on weight.. I rarely weight them. If I had to guess 7-8lbs and 3 1/2 - 4 1/2lbs.


Those were from Lake Placid, Fl.

Nice fish. I'm usually not much of a saltwater type guy (just love freshwater fish species) but that snook is cool. They are one species I have always liked the looks of :)

I rarely get over to the salt. Im 60+ miles in both directions from the Atlantic and gulf. That's what is cool about snook. I catch them close to home, solely in fresh water on bass tackle. Along with a few other salt species including jack crevalle and tarpon.

These are a couple of bass I caught on spin gear the last time out with my fishing buddy. After my wife met my fishing buddy she made me sell the boat and take up trout fishing.

It's no wonder your Wife got upset, Vic.  You should've shown her standing with a fish or two, on the boat on the water.  

Instead you showed that picture.  How's your Wife supposed to know she even knows what a fish is ???
